Optometrist of the Year – Two Years Running
Local Optometrists, Matheson Optometrists who locally have practices in Petersfield, Grayshott, Purbrook and Denmead, have been awarded another national eye-care award. As far as we can tell this has never happened before.
Last year the Macular society named them as Optometrist of the Year, for their work looking after patients with macular degeneration, using new technology to help prevent and treat this disease.
They have just been presented with the Optometrist of the Year trophy at the National Optician Awards Ceremony. This means that for 2 consecutive years, our local optometrist has achieved this highest accolade. The fact that 2 separate bodies independently have deemed it appropriate to make this award, makes this even more impressive.
Andrew Matheson also was the overall winner in the Keeler Retinal Photography Trophy. He was the first therapeutically qualified Optometrist in the UK and is one of only a handful of optometrists with Specialist Glaucoma Qualifications. Therapeutic Optometrists are qualified to treat as well as diagnose eye disease. Andrew is registered with BUPA and other health care providers. This greatly improves the service to the patient and also helps shorten the hospital waiting lists.
Matheson Optometrists have always been at the forefront of ocular innovation, being one of the first practices to embrace routine air puff tonometry for glaucoma screening in the early 80s. They are involved in research into new technology for eye disease detection, striving to provide the most comprehensive eye-care for their patients. OCT and Auto-Fluorescence Macular imaging are operated by highly skilled and friendly staff.
The Matheson practice has had on-site spectacle workshops so your spectacles can be made or repaired while you wait. Treatments for Colour Blindness and Dyslexia are also offered.
In addition to all this clinical excellence the Matheson Optometrists practice stocks frames from the best manufacturers in the world such as Mykita, Lindberg, Tom Davies and Maui Jim. Other Designer frames include Fendi, Prada, Valentino, Chloe, Nike and Calvin Klein. They also stock high quality value ranges. They source spectacle lenses from top suppliers. And are able to offer the new individualised varifocals measured using the high-tech Visioffice measuring system.
In response to high demand for non-weekday appointments, especially by patients who commute to London, Matheson Optometrists now offer evening and Sunday appointments.
